VMware is a doctrine all its own—operation, maintenance, support, security, and the cluster dependent overhead can become burdensome. It isn’t that VMware is bad, in fact, it is very good technology.

A few years ago, TransAlta decided to move 100% of its data to the cloud. The company centralized its data to reduce infrastructure, simplify data access, and scale storage.
